Norwegian Gem

Sail Date: January 01, 2010

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was clean and had a nice layout. Especially liked the Garden Cafe. The handling of the excursions was very poor. I would never take an excursion with NCL again. This was my 5th cruise with NCL and the excursions were never as good as stated. This time the excursions were terrible! The cabin staff were friendly but not very attentive to replacing items needed in the cabin. We had to ask for more toilet tissue or coffee mugs, etc. They were not replaced without asking. All in all the cruise was good and I would recommend the Gem.

Pros: The ship - a very nice ship

Cons: The excursions

Recommends Norwegian Gem? Yes!

Food and Dining
The specialty restaurants were better than the dinning rooms ( but at a price)
Cabin / Stateroom
room was never dusted or vacuumed after the first day.
Service and Staff
Staff did not "go above and beyond
Shows were not up to par. Seen better shows on other ships.
Ship Quality
